About CarlBatterbee

Sales 1,648
On Etsy since 2011


I'm Carl, a freelance illustrator living and working in Norwich, UK.

Since leaving Art School in the 90's, circumstances lead me away from art and towards a career in teaching, and later Web Design. However, since becoming a family man, and spending a lot of time drawing and reading picture books with my two children, I became inspired to pick up the (apple) pencil and start making a living from my illustration.

I opened my Etsy shop a couple of years back, and began to sell prints and greeting cards that feature my quirky style of cartoon illustration and which tackle hard hitting topics such as biscuits, puppies, robots and dinosaurs ;)

I also accept portrait commissions - couples, families, pets and anything else (within reason). Feel free to get in touch or order via my Etsy listing if you're interested.

My ultimate goal is to illustrate children's books, but for now I'm happy to be doing what I enjoy and to be sharing a bit of love and laughter in my "funny" little way.

Many thanks :)

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. Here's some info about the prints:

All prints are produced to a professional, long lasting standard using high quality Epson pigment ink on heavyweight matte photo paper.

5"x7" prints have a quarter inch border and 8"x 10" prints have a 1 inch border - for maximum image size and optimum framing options. If you would like a larger border please specify in the message to seller box when you check out.

Each print is hand cut and sized so sizes may vary slightly.

If you have any further questions about my prints please email me at carlbatterbee [!at]

Thank you!
